All Black fronts up in bid to save Otago

The stories about the bid to save the Otago women's provincial team (see earlier article) continue apace, with new information coming out almost daily (you'd think the sheer level of publicity would result in a reassessment from those involved, if only due to embarrassment - but not, it seems).

The latest news is the involvement of All Black Adam Thomson who has made it his "personal mission to help the region and the game that has given me so much by giving the Otago women an opportunity to play." In pursuit of this he has auctioned off a 2011 RWC ball signed by the All Blacks (that raised $NZ3,240 on its own!) and Highlanders polo shirt and shorts (bids around $NZ200 each at the moment).

No announcement has been made about how far the total is from its $NZ20,000 goal - but it must be well on its way.
